Our Christmas Tree 2014

One of my absolute favourite things about Christmas is putting up the tree and decorations, and it has been since I was a child. It's part of the magic I've always loved, and for me the tradition of 12 days before, and taking the decorations down 12 days after Christmas is one I've always wanted to uphold, sadly it's not always my call and with this xmas not being the best, things have already started to look a bit bare. I really hate the bareness and January blues, so I thought I'd schedule a post sharing some of my favourite bits of the tree/decorations to go live on the 12th night.

My nephew putting up the tree:

Even though my sisters left home, it's still been a tradition for us to decorate the tree together, after Mum and I have put it up. This year we had some help from my 2 year old nephew Joey. I'm not sure he fully understands Christmas yet, but he's definitely more into it, and loves helping out with jobs like this.

A Sale Bargain:

One of the things I absolutely love to do is check out the Christmas bargain aisles, normally the only thing I come home with after xmas is cards or paper for next year. I wasn't planning on buying anything extra in 2014, but spotted a few decorations for 75p on-sale in B&Q so couldn't resist snapping up a few. Here's one of them (love anything reindeer).

Finally, who's that under the tree?
